What Saraki Said at His World Press Conference

Nigerian Senate President Bukola Saraki is speaking 24 hours after lawmakers tried to impeach him and failed - and rejected calls for him to step down. Saraki described the blockade at the National Assembly by security operatives and the postponement of the emergency meeting of the principal officers of both chambers as "a show of shame that played itself out over several hours in full view of the country. In no circumstances should this have happened".
